All sirens must earn their place on Paradise…even those born there.
In 2132 AD, fifteen-year-old Kassiana’s life was royalty. Born on Nemal, the richest of the Paradise Planets, she had no idea how the people of Earth–the Gaians–suffered. But her idyllic and harmonious life was shattered when she was forcefully kidnapped and taken to live among them on a flooded Earth.
After a near-fatal assault leaves Kassi without a voice–a siren's source of power–Kassi learns she must get recruited to a team of champions and win the Siren Games, the foremost vocal sporting competition in all the worlds, if she ever wants to see home again.

Picked this book up wondering if it were just another young adult novel. But it was not! I loved the depth of subjects explored: coming of age, depth of friendships, social and emotional equality, competition, digging deep during adversity, child abuse, recognition of the needs of others, death, separation. It reminded me of the first time I read 'Ender's Game'. So, adults, young adults and teens will find something in this book. In fact, I gave it to my neighbor to read.
This was one of the first books I have read in a while, and I was barely able to put it down! The world that Shaun created is so easy to get lost in, I felt that I had made friends with the characters by the end of the book. The plot twists kept me on the edge of my seat and I especially enjoyed reading the parts written in Evéik. I am eagerly awaiting the next installment in the series!
Hi! I’m 12 years old and this is one of the best books I’ve ever read in my entire life. I absolutely loved the book! I tried to compare it to other books and I couldn’t! It is great! Out of all of the books I’ve read this is definitely my favorite! I don’t really say this but I could read this book again and that’s coming from a girl who read a LOT of books. I can’t wait for the next books! I hope my librarian gets it for the school library!
